All mom's have their fears. The fears that you might not know how to change a baby's diaper right, or those fears that I'd rather not mention...those irrational fears that only a mom could imagine happening.
I've got mine for having a 2nd child. A little nervous of the sleepiness... I'm a little scared that I'll have no idea of what to do with a GIRL! how to fix her hair... keep her "clean" (diaper area) (Boys are just so easy)
How to play with dolls, barbies, American Girl...things... Geez!
I'm sure I'll manage....but it'll certainly be interesting.
With Denver my fears were those of any first time mom. WHAT DO I DO WITH A BABY!?!?!
He won't stop crying.... What does he WANT!?!?!
A few of my fears came true. Once I left Denver in the car. At a gas station. I totally forgot he was back there, and just went right in. I was only gone a minute or 2, bu I got in, buckled up and heard him make a little noise, and HOLY COW! I freaked!!! What kind of mother was I?!?! Leaving a 6 month old baby in the car!!!!
Another time, I actually locked him in the car with my keys....again at a gas station. He was happy, had his juice and loved the kind firemen who came to break into my car. :-)
Once, I was so frustrated that I had no idea what to do with him. He was screaming. Wouldn't eat, sleep, play, walk...NOTHING. So, I calmly put him in his bed, and walked outside and closed the door behind me. I may have screamed a little, but it definitely helped.
all in All we made it through. He's fine. I'm fine... and we're all happy. All you new moms out there and mom's to be, you're not alone. Those crazy thoughts, and feelings are totally normal!
Take a deep breathe and breathe! It'll all be fine.
